Help Elderly Seniors Stay Healthy

Donation protected
UPDATE:
Of my original $500 goal, I reached $200! Thank you again to those who have donated! So far, I have been able to purchase 12 blankets and 12 yoga straps for my students. I am keeping this fundraiser open ($300 more to go) with hopes of being able to purchase more yoga blankets to share with more students. Thank you!

Hi, my name is Sonya and I teach Chair Yoga to a small group of elderly people at a senior-assisted living community.

I have the best group of regulars who are mostly in their eighties ~ they love their Saturday morning yoga and they love connecting their body to their mind to their breath.

This lovely group of men and women can benefit from the use of yoga accessories.

I am doing this fundraiser to raise money to purchase ten sets of yoga blocks ($149.80), ten yoga straps ($69.80), and ten yoga blankets (189.50) plus shipping and tax. The blocks and straps will assist them with their stretches. These will be stored in the fitness classroom for all Chair Yoga participants to use. The yoga blankets will be personally given to each participant for them to keep so they are not having to share blankets with others. My thinking is to give a blanket to the first ten people who attend ten classes each. Something that makes it feel like a recognition of their effort and dedication. They can then bring their blankets to yoga class and drape them over their shoulders or legs while in Savasana.

This special group of attendees warms my heart each and every Saturday that I share with them. They want to keep moving, maintain flexibility and mobility, and keep their minds working, too...all of which they get from yoga. I want to be able to share with them small touches of yoga accessories that will further benefit them.

Our elderly are so often a forgotten group in today's society ~ thank you in advance for helping me help them live happier and healthier lives!
